Dear Doggers,

 

The Kolpin rear rack pad I bought so my sheepdog could ride my Kawaski Prairie 400 has gaps perfectly situated for him to drop a paw through while mounting or dismounting and break a leg.  Does anyone know a better one?

Maybe a stall mat cut to fit and attached with wire so there are no holes at all (other than where the wire is threaded to attach to the rack)?

 

I think Jim Murphy built a wooden platform onto which he secured a wire crate, but that's a bit more cumbersome.

I used a truck mud flap cut to fit the back rack.
